Americans enjoy access to the highest quality health care in the world. Unfortunately, poor practices, overworked health care professionals and low staff levels sometimes lead to treatment errors that result in serious injuries and even wrongful death.
A survey conducted by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality found that 42 percent of Americans believe they have been affected, directly or indirectly, by a medical error, and 32 percent believe that the mistake has made a permanent impact on their health. In another survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation, 8 percent said that medical negligence had caused the death of a family member.
